Here is an image of my shop jersey (which I still have), but I never wore it with the Fox pants. The pants I had then were some sort of JC Whitney leather things with race stripes down the sides. Red white blue as I recall. . I wore High Point Boots, though. The best boots money could buy. Somehow I lost them after life took over...
Here is an image of the helmet I wore taken recently too:
We had an occasional staff member who raced a Puch 125 for Ian. He was a teenage 6 footer about 140lbs with curley brown hair and glasses. I've been trying to think of his name for decades. Is that you?
We had some other interesting youngsters hanging around there and racing with us on weekends. These young guys went on to invent great sporting products. Keith Bontrager of mountain bike fame comes to mind first, and a kid by the name of Simons, who invented the inverted fork (although it was air charged as I recall).
Anyways, Grand Prix Cycles was at the heart of the emerging Northern California motocross scene; Sand Hill, Hang Town, Dixon Landing, Sears Point, Baylands, Watsonvile Fairgrounds.
I know you know those places...
